This is what seems to be Hyundai’s attempt at tackling one of the greatest luxury coupes out-there “Mercedes-Benz S Class Coupe” with a concept dubbed the HCD-16 or the Hyundai Vision G Concept which debuted in Los Angeles Country Museum of Art and Hyundai says this Large Luxurious coupe concept will serve as inspiration for a “family of future premium products” that will offer performance, luxury and style together with value that we are all used to from the Korean car maker Hyundai.
The Hyundai Vision G Concept seems to feature a very well proportioned profile that favors large detailed elements and sharp lines to indicate the intoxicating eye-luxury you would expect from an uber luxury coupe that would serve as the next-generation Equus flagship coupe and the the bigger sedan of-course. This would be the step-up to the current genesis coupe and sedan models with a much more prevalent profile and beautiful large proportions.
If you have been following Hyundai and Kia for the past 5 years, you would definitely recognize the name “Peter Schreyer – ex Audi chief designer” as this man completely turned the two companies head over heels after joining as design chief, giving both automakers design language that sets them apart from the rest.
The Hyundai Vision G Concept was designed with the idea of chivalry as Peter Schreyer explains; the concept is striving to be taken seriously without having to shout for attention while also serving the driver with a door that opens automatically when approached- Hyundai calls it the Virtual Valet Door System. The underpinnings are the same rear-wheel drive platform taken from the latest Genesis sedan packaged with the powerful 5.0 liter V-8 engine that puts out 420 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque.
We expect this concept to translate into future luxury offerings of both Hyundai and Kia, in about 3 to 5 years depending on the automakers progress in the market.
